Did You Know?


The court case at the center of this story was based upon the sensational real life case between Lee Marvin and his live in girlfriend Michelle Triola. This episode was produced soon after her heavily publicized lawsuit against Marvin concluded in April 1979 with a judgment in her favor (which an appeals court would subsequently throw out).

Another prison buddy
7 October 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jim Rockford seems never to run out of old prison buddies whom he can't say no to. Look at how much he helps Angel Martin out of the scrapes he gets in. In this case it's George Loros who originally is from New Jersey and had his peripheral involvement with some people in an organization led by Tony Soprano no doubt.

In this case this involves the disappearance of the record producer of rock star Kristoffer Tabori. Tabori has some problems as well as he is the recipient of a palimony suit.

My problem with this one is the same as with the second part. Loros comes off as such a nice guy you can't quite believe him to be part of entourage of a celebrity dealing with security. In fact all he does is moon about another groupie, Marcia Strassman who has also disappeared.

Good but not up to the usual high standards I get from The Rockford Files.
